Get the Most Accurate Speed Reading from Your Turntable
Proper turntable alignment is critical to getting the most from your LPs, speed stability is an essential part of any turntable setup. Every aspect of a turntable's performance is affected by speed; bass, midrange and treble, tonal balance, even imaging can be affected by incorrect speed.
The Clearaudio Speed Strobe Light is a calibrated 300Hz quartz light source, vastly more accurate than standard fluorescent light sources, allowing for higher accuracy and greater ease in determining actual platter speed. When used with the Clearaudio Speed Strobe LP this little light takes the stress out of checking platter speed.
The Speed Strobe Strobe Light is half of the very popular Clearaudio Speed Strobe Kit.
“[Clearaudio's Speed Strobe Kit], a two-sided white strobe
disc, with markings for calibrating both 33 and 45 speeds, as well as a
special groove that allows you to break in a cartridge. Shine the [Speed
Strobe Light's] little blue light on the disc, and, voila, speed can
easily be calibrated. The Clearaudio Speed Test Disc and Speed Laser
have become part of our reference accessories list. And much welcomed!”
